Threadlock question..
Which 'Loctite' Threadlock should I be using on my exhaust port studs, valve covers and the like on my Carrera 3.0 Engine. I was under the impression that 'Red' was the one. Just visited the Loctite site and there are loads of different 'Red' types.246,294,222,222MS etc.etc. Does it really matter which I use? I'm sure it does....cheers M

I wouldn't use any on the exhaust port studs. "Red" Loctite is usually 272 here in the states.

Having just had to drill out, re-tap and helicoil three of my exhaust studs I have a sneaky suspicion they don't fall out to often;)

I would actually use anti-seize in the threads, and just check the nuts periodically. Much easier than replacing broken studs.;)

Many thread lock on the exhaust studs. Just copper grease. How about using stainless steel bolts instead of studs. Wouldn't that stop them seizing inplace?
PS Just out of interest '911mot'..are you aware of P. Auto Car boot coming up on 23 April? Seeing as you're a 'local'

I don't think that stainless and aluminum goes together that well. I not sure but someone may be able to clear that up?

are you aware of P. Auto Car boot coming up on 23 April?
Yes I am, I came across an ad for it in a magazine.
Closer inspection of the page reveals another jumble sale going on as well:D

Knowing those guys reputation and seeing some of their "work" firsthand, I'm embarrassed to be a Californian.:(
